Drivers with Uber and Lyft say they expect to pick up and drop off plenty of passengers in Nashville this weekend due to things like the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, Bonnaroo, and CMA Fest.
WKRN.com reports that one driver quit her job to drive for Lyft in Nashville. She says that because parking downtown is so expensive, with some lots charging $80 for two hours, more people will rely on ride-sharing services to get to their destinations. She also said that she expects to complete around 30 fares.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation told reporters that traffic backups and congestion are expected throughout the area, including downtown, and that people who plan on participating the festivities should avoid driving if possible.
